It has been reported that India's student applications to American graduate schools have shot up, while applications from Chinese students have witnessed a fall.
The number of overall international student applications is up by 7 percent, with a growth of 32 percent from India. It has been recorded that there was a 22 percent rise in the Indian applications, and 40 percent rise in the enrolments in 2013.
According to recent observation, the number of first-time students at English universities from India and Pakistan had significantly decreased since 2010. Perhaps, some of the students may have chosen institutions in the United States as their alternate option to apply.
Currently, China and India take No.1 and No.2 stands respectively, although they are very unique in many ways, in terms of market differentiation.
According to the officials, India is believed to have huge prospects in the international education circuit. It is almost the new platform of the international graduate-student market. A considerable share of Indian graduate students enroll in master's programmes and professional-degree programmes and manage to cover tuition costs themselves.
